Test Ride To Maine!

I decided to take the new bike on a test ride to see if she will be worthy of the cross country trip I will soon be embarking on.  Proud to say she made it to Bar Harbor, ME in fine fashion.  The new seat still needs some breaking in, but that aside, I believe I will not have to worry about the bike during the trip.  As much as I like wrenching, having a bike that performs with basic maintenance will be a real pleasure.  Here I am on top of Cadillac Mountain, the highest peak on the continental east coast!
